Goldman's Fraud, But What About John Paulson’s Other $13 Billion? / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDisaster has been good to John Paulson.

The hedge fund manager rose from relative obscurity to legend within the span of 12 months when his bets against the subprime mortgage market netted him and his investors billions. The returns on invested capital were absolutely absurd: one of his funds returned 590 in 2007, another returned 353 percent. By the time the smoke cleared, Paulson had made $3.7 billion for himself, and another $10+ billion for his investors.

Declining Bank Loans – Write-Downs or Pay-Downs? / Economics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe mentioned in our April 2010 U.S. Economic and Interest Rate Outlook [It's Been A While] that the ongoing contraction in commercial bank lending was an important factor curbing our enthusiasm about near-term growth in U.S. aggregate demand. But we did acknowledge that our lack of optimism might be misplaced if the cause of the continued contraction in bank lending was due more to write-downs of loans gone sour rather than of pay-downs of loans. We argued that if bank loans were falling because the dollar amount of write-downs exceeded the dollar amount of new loans being granted, the write-downs were immaterial with respect to new spending.

Politicians Attempt to Diffuse Goldman Sachs and Mega-Banks Financial Scandal / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs the world faces an ongoing sovereign debt debacle we see an attempt to defuse an oncoming scandal involving Goldman Sachs, Paulson and perhaps others.

The collapse of the fiat money system is underway and each day picks up momentum. The only question is how long it can survive? In the interim we are faced with inflation and perhaps hyperinflation as the privately owned Federal Reserve and other central banks add stimulus and money and credit into their financial systems.

EXTEND and PRETEND, Is the U.S. Facing a Cash Crunch? / Interest-Rates / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Gordon_T_Long

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US Government is caught in a cash vise and is being squeezed between too slow a rebound in tax revenues and the limitations on how quickly it can realistically take its funding requirements to the US Treasury auction. The US Treasury was saved in March by what the government reports as “proprietary receipts”. Those receipts require an explanation that is not well publicized since it begs the question of what happens next month without the $117 BILLION journal entry.

The derivatives market is currently at around $600 trillion or so (in gross notional value).

Goldman Sachs "Financial Fraud!" What a Happy Noise. Revenge is Sweet / Companies / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSchadenfreude. The pleasure derived from watching someone else suffer. It's human nature and it's what's what's driving the Goldman pile-on. SEC Enforcement director Robert Khuzami had barely uttered his statement on Friday, before the the yelps of joy arose from every corner of the country. "Fraud!" What a happy noise. Revenge is sweet. Suddenly the prospect of subpoenas, indictments, and long prison sentences didn't seem so remote. But don't get your hopes up. Goldman was picked for a reason, and that reason has nothing to do with its shady business transactions. It's politics.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you have you ever seen a cockroach in the kitchen, you know there are more than what you see. The same concept applies to improper financial activity by companies. When you find one bad action, you will more than likely find others.

The Criminalization of Wall Street, Lynching Bankers is not the Solution / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Global_Research

Six out ten Americans have a hostile view of Wall Street, according to a recent poll. And this survey was taken before the news last week that the US government is charging top Wall Street bank Goldman Sachs and its vice president with fraud over trade in mortgages and derivatives. The charge is serious, given that Goldman Sachs is accused of being aware that there would be an imminent collapse in the US housing market. Nevertheless, the bank went ahead anyway, merrily trading its toxic assets.

Goldman Sachs and the Mega Banks: Too Big To Obey The Law / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSimon Johnson writes: On a short-term tactical basis, Goldman Sachs clearly has little to fear.  It has relatively deep pockets and will fight the securities “Fab” allegations tooth and nail; resolving that case, through all the appeals stages, will take many years.  Friday’s announcement had a significant negative impact on the market perception of Goldman’s franchise value – partly because what they are accused of doing to unsuspecting customers is so disgusting.  But, as a Bank of America analyst (Guy Mozkowski) points out this morning, the dollar amount of this specific allegation is small relative to Goldman’s overall business and – frankly – Goldman’s market position is so strong that most customers feel a lack of plausible alternatives.

ProPublica's (and NY Times') "Untold" Magnetar Story Creates Excuses for Wall Street and Washington / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleProPublica, Planet Money, and radio show This American Life recently carried stories about Magnetar, a hedge fund that profited from the housing crisis. Unfortunately, many thought it was a fresh revelation. Magnetar wasn't a previously unknown hedge fund. Magnetar did not create the synthetic CDO structure, and the magnitude of Magnetar's role in the subprime crisis has been overblown.
